Obama Wants Your Guns!

Those who worship at the feet of the Messiah, Barack Hussein Obama, will probably yet again claim that this is a racist column and that CFP should immediately begin distancing themselves from its writer. ~ Bob Beers

Little do they know that the Canada Free Press publishes this column because we found each other to be of like minds. Liberals cannot conceive of something like that.

They are emphatically convinced that they are the majority opinion in the world and that those who disagree with them are at best deluded and at worst a danger to their “freedoms” that must be eliminated, the law be damned.

CBS, of all places, released a well written story dealing with the Second Amendment and the upcoming Supreme Court Case that will decide, yet again, whether or not American citizens can legally own firearms. Here is a snippet from that article:

“Nobody has been hurt by the protesters who have legally carried guns to events where the president has been speaking, and I know of no evidence that they were even close enough to see the man.

Nevertheless, Eleanor Holmes Norton, the District of Columbia’s non-voting Democratic rep in the U.S. House of Representatives, wants mandatory “gun-free zones around the president, his cabinet and other top federal officials,” according to a report by the local Fox affiliate. Similarly, the Brady Campaign told CBS News that guns have no place at such an event.”

Since the 1939 decision in United States v. Miller, liberals smugly understood that an individual’s right to own a gun was not protected by the Constitution. They claimed that because of the “well regulated militia” line that the right was a collective rather than individual right.  The ACLU, not an organization known for deep thinking, published an opinion on the recent Supreme Court’s 2008 decision in D.C. v. Heller where the court held for the first time that the Second Amendment protects an individual’s right to keep and bear arms, whether or not associated with a state militia.

The liberal left fought back, having friendly justices at the Ninth Circuit Court who were also uneasy with law abiding citizens packing heat in the same neighborhood as the President, even if their skin tone resembled his. They are feeling pretty smug again with the elevation of Sonia Sotomayor to the Supreme Court, especially since she has a record of ignoring common sense and the law in favor of leftist agendas.

Several leftist pundits and writers have expressed disdain at those of us who warn of the dangers of Obama’s policies. Of course, few of them are as idiotically crass as former Presisdent Jimmy Carter and refrain from calling those who disagree with Obama racist, but many come awfully close. If you sneer at the statements of babbling fools like Louis Farrakhan or Jeremiah Wright you must be a racist, right? Funny thing is, if Doctor Martin Luther King were alive today, he would be one of those doing the sneering. Would they call him a racist?

Obama made a very telling statement. One he has tried to distance himself from, even going so far as to deny it came from him. He made the original comments while speaking to a group of wealthy California donors in San Francisco. This is the hot button portion:

“And it’s not surprising when they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.” (Said in Pennsylvania) In other words, when you see your freedoms being eroded, jobs being shipped overseas and illegal immigrants being given for free medical care you cannot afford, you shouldn’t become bitter. You should bless the government for being so compassionate. Don’t bother to read the Constitution, that’s something for your betters to understand.

Check out my column on the Second Amendment. What is really interesting about it is that not one of those lefties sending me hate mail has even tried to rebut my interpretation. As it is written the Second Amendment to the US Constitution is unequivocal in its granting of the individual right to own your own gun. Those who dispute this do so because that right interferes with their agenda. Obama has a willing lackey in Eleanor Holmes Norton. The question you need to ask yourself is, after two precedent-setting supreme court decisions establishing that right, why is he trying to overturn them?
